Living locally we're working our way through the menu. Have not struck a bad dish yet. Damir is the perfect host. Reading some of the other less favourable reviews on here I have to say "why did you come here or order what you did"? Damir has a very dry sense of humour. He is passionate about his food and...

We were looking for a Sunday roast lunch and has almost given up when we came across this restuarant who had a roast beef special. The restrauant is lovely and the meal was amazing with the most incredible gravy that I wish I knew how to make at home! This meal was one of the highlights of our trip.

A" walk in" of 3 persons, mid week in August at 6pm was not greeted warmly, rather offered an outside table as a favour one felt. Unable to amend stuffed mushrooms to be cheese(dairy) free. I guess this place thrives on regulars who are greeted very warmly! Photos of food on their website crafted well for the camera, but we... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meals at Provincial. Great menu, good wine list, good service. We could not fault a thing. The waiter was polite and knowledgeable and was always on hand. everything that was brought to our table was well presented, well cooked and delicious.

Mine Host Damir. provides excellent service. The food was exquisite, cooked to perfection and beautifully plated. The menu on offer is so good it takes a little while to decide what to order. I have eaten here a number of times and it is always excellent. Attractive décor inside and outdoor eating areas , great bar. Highly recommend.

This restaurant dished up the best meal we've had while on holiday in Australia. We partook of the Wednesday night Fillet steak and Shiraz promo for $69 a couple. The steak was cooked to our individual requests of blue and rare. It was tender, good temperature with lovely crispy vegetables. A very pleasant Barossa Shiraz to accompany the meal. Friendly...

We celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary here last night. The food was exquisite! My barramundi was cooked to perfection. Great prices for food and wine with an extensive selection of each. It was hard to decide what to order, so we'll definitely be back to try more dishes soon. Extensive gluten free options for fellow coeliacs. Extremely warm hospitality. A... More

Provincial is consistently the best on Tedder for the last couple of years. We have tried them all and it is great to have international quality dining readily available. We think that we are lucky to have a quality restaurant like Provincial on the Gold Coast. 1. Restaurant and Decor - The restaurant (and bar if you wish) are well... More

We are regular diners here, we find the food consistently good and the service is exceptional. Dined here last Wednesday. The entrée mussels my wife had and the and lobster bisque I had were just beautiful and the steak mains we had were cooked to perfection. Always a top wine served with the evening special. This weeks one is particularly... More
